That is damn sexy.
Just installed 4 of these Arctic F12 pwm case fans. They all link together so they can be controlled with one four pin header.
I know I just posted some pics.... but here are some better ones. These pics show the new SSD, re-done cable management, and reorganized tubing. All I am missing is my new memory and White LED strips.
That looks uber fantastic! Love it!
Never liked the prodigy (mainly because its a huge itx case) but I love yours! That looks amazing! The waterblock looks fantastic on there.
Thanks guys it means a lot.... I think it turned out nicely also.
Yeah the Prodigy is a little bigger than I was expecting.... but coming from a Full tower case (generally) it feels tiny. Also that extra ITX space sure does fill up quick with W/C components in there
Thanks again for the kind words
I think ill need help to manage cables in a aerocool DS cube.
Ill post soon.
That will be an awesome build! I look forward to seeing it.
Just did a Aerocool DS (white window version) for the kids this afternoon.
Waiting for a Kraken G10 to complete the build.
It sure is hard to get things right in there when your used to larger space (in my case the Phantek Enthoo Primo)
YEP , i need to clean my D14 and its fans or just go for a H220.
D14 blocks the first PCIE on my Z77 Extreme4-M.
ok ... back to AIO CWC .... since mITX and µATX build benefit more from those than a air cooler ...
i brought a Seidon 120V today installed it, found the mounting quite easy and straightforward on the opposite of what i did read, the tubing is not "low flexibility" as i did read, the pump isn't gurgling at all even at full speed, the fan is n... wait a sec nope directly swapped it for a AP121, metal bracket metal backplate 2 set of screws for 2 fan and a set of short screw for fixing the rad on the case without a second fan ... i don't exactly get what is Low cost on that AIO ... i even had a H60i, who cost nearly 1 time and a half the price of the 120V, who had more problems than that one ...
also for the temps
idle X4 760K @ 4.6ghz
Katana 4: 39°, i wondered why i got that kind of temp but since it was a AMD chip i thought it was normal, also that was forcing the 92mm of the K4 going 80% rpm which is kinda loud for a idle state(if i didn't modified the fan curve)
Seidon 120V: 28° with a fixed 1500rpm well the AP121 is kinda quiet at 1k5 (iirc a fan is "quiet" @ 1300rpm and under)
load (regular gaming) X4 760K @ 4.6ghz
Katana 4: 87°, while its still a safe temp, its rather annoying
Seidon 120V: 59°, not bad for a low cost AIO
the Katana 4 will go in the server... i need too wait till my etailer restock it to take a 2nd
really need a 2nd K4
and family pics!
Got a Corsair Airflow memory cooler
Do you really need it? I feel its like more noise and less value in the RIG
No, I don't need it but for aesthetics it does good, and I don't run it at full speed. That's why I have a panel for adjusting the fans
Dead 580 couldn't handle 1.23V
Got some new GPUs
The 280x is to replace the GTX 580 that was in the lanbox and it will also be doing mining when it's not being used for LANs.
Why did I get the 7850? Well it was only $119AUD which is a bargain. It will be mining for me.
The 7850OC 1gb JUST squeezed - because of the increased width of the cooler into the Aerocool M40 case where I have an 1156 build - my old lanbox (i3-530, now 2GB ram, h67m-usb3 etc). And no I didn't forget the plug in the PCIe you see there, it has to be unplugged to hinge-off the top layer. Excuse the cable management please
Here is my RAT ROD at work
Found this by a dumpster last night. Completely trashed, didn't even turn it on like this. The motherboard wasn't on standoffs, it was screwed right into the case with foam keeping it from shorting. Despite the Biostar motherboard, cheap case and cheap PSU it did have 2 gigs of Corsair XMS2 ram, a bit of a surprise. It now has some Kingston value ram as I'm planning on selling it cheap on Craigslist to raise funds for a new camera.
Cleaned and rebuilt in a new case.
At least she's a runner!
Does anyone know a good blue LED 120mm fan(with a black shroud, i need only the blades to light up), 3 or 4 pin, that doesn't dim the lights when run slower?
You may have to locate/seperate the LED wiring to stop it from dimming
Here's a 140mm that looks like it has a split wiring setup:
*these are new models AFAIK- 120mm ones may be available or coming soon?
I found a PWM version of that Jetflo... would that not dim, perhaps? The Phanteks looks awesome with the white blades though. Will keep an eye on that.
Working on my rig here, moving from one case and RIVE to a new case and RIVBE
This is what it looked like
And this is how it looks now
So, I sold my previous system (In my system specs Including monitor.) for a wod of cash and bought myself this little fella for now which cost me 1k AUD from where I work (www.mwave.com.au).
B85-C Asus Motherboard 1150
8GB Stick of Kingston RAM - This cost me very little.
256GB A-Data SSD
Corsair VS650 PSU
H100i (Had this lying around) Running it fanless
Asus GTX 760 Direct CUII OC'd to 1200/1625
Have no problems with running games at 60fps except for the obvious ones such as Crysis 3, Metro etc. which I've already experienced and played. I could've gone with a cheaper case and a cheaper 1TB/2TB 7200RPM drive instead of the SSD which would've saved me 100 odd AUD more or less as well but decided against it in the end as Broadwell and Maxwell will be making it's way into the case and I can't stand HDD boot up times.
